Video: Mich. firefighter's 2012 year on the job

A Highland Park firefighter documented a year's worth of 2012 fire calls on his helmet-cam

By Tanya Moutzalias

HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. — Highland Park firefighter, Scott Ziegler, captured his 2012 year of fighting fires using a video camera attached to his helmet.

This inside look at a year on the front lines of fighting fires in Highland Park, the small city inside of Detroit, is overlaid with the Eminem and 50 Cent song, "Till I Collapse".

On his YouTube page, Ziegler who goes by HPZ1442, said he used a contour ROAM camera and had to replace several of the lenses and mounts throughout the year.
